You just have to pick the proper time and date to visit this place. I once had the misfortune of eating here with the sauce or other ingredients gone bad. Suffered from an upset stomach for a couple of days

In the past five years, shawarma (shawurma/shawerma) stalls have been popping out left and right like babies being born 9 months after Valentine's Day. We have stalls such as Solibao, Chubby's, Yousef's, Rumors, Rica's, Bespren, and many other that played part on the shawarma trend.
One place stands out among the others is Ali's House of Shawarma, located on Bonifacio St., across from SLU's Gate 3. This place doesn't just specialize in shawarma, they also specialize in affordable Indian and Middle Eastern cuisine such as, kebabs, masala, curry, baryani and kry.
All of the dishes that I've tried thus far have been delicious. My favorites are the beef, also the lamb masala. Masala is simple a traditional Indian dish that packs a lot of flavors. It's composed slow cooked beef or lamb, with spices from the east that gives this dish a deep and earthy taste. The meat, when slow cooked absorbs the spices, and is very fork tender. It goes very well with their baryani rice.
Another favorite of mine is their shawarma. The the open flamed roasted beef and chicken is well seasoned, and cooked well unlike other places where the meat is undercooked/overcooked, at times too salty.
Last, but not least are their homemade samosas! In every bite you can taste the cumin, coriander, ginger, garlic. The crust, always, is perfectly fried, crisp and flakey, and never greasy. I suggest to top those dishes with their garlic sauce. The sauce is thick, rich, fully and boldly flavored with garlic. It beats all shawarma spots in Baguio.
Ali's House of Shawarma never fails; not only with their food, but with their price. Dishes range from 50PhP-200PhP. Shawarma ranges from 35PhP-50PhP, with a special of buy 2 get 1 free for 100PhP. If you a huge appetite, with a not-so-huge budget, this (is) the place to be.
